The film is a Hindi-language remake of the 2016 Marathi film Sairat, it featured her as a young upper-class girl whose life turns tragic after she elopes with a lower-class boy (played by Khatter). However, the film received predominantly negative reviews, but with a worldwide collection of ₹1.1 billion, it proved to be a commercial success.
Rajeev Masand, writing for News18, criticized the film for removing caste-based references and deemed it inferior to the original, but felt Kapoor had “a fragility that makes her instantly endearing and a soulful quality that makes it hard to take your eyes off her on-screen”. However, Anna M. M Verricad of Firstsport thought that she “lacks personality and delivers a colorless performance. Kapoor went on to win the Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut. That same year, the cosmetics brand Nykaa selected her to be their brand ambassador. Her next screen appearance came in 2020 when she starred in Zoya Akhtar’s segment in the Netflix horror anthology film Ghost Stories.
